OmniVision OV10810 CMOS image sensor shoots 10MP photos

[CES 2011] What makes the OmniVision OV10810 CMOS image sensor sexy? How about its ability to shoot 10-megapixel photos while you’re recording 1080p videos? Yeah, that what we’re talking about, a high megapixel count that is not normally found on most HD video recording devices. The OV10810 (in theory) works brilliantly – imagine you want to freeze frame that particular moment, just tap the screen and it will be done without interrupting the video recording session. With pixels measuring just 1.4 microns small, the 1/2.5 inch sensor will rely on back side illumination to enable improved low light sensitivity and should hit the market in devices that ship this year. It would be interesting to see when the megapixel count race is over though and something else comes up.
